Our Baron Fergus and Baroness Helene
Greetings most noble, and industrious people of Delftwood,
Over the last few weeks, we have seen swords raised in honorable battle, and in joyous celebration. We have also faced challenges of nature, and seen the true courage, and charity of our citizens, as well as of our cousins. We have witnessed the coronation of our new Emperor and Empress Tindal Augustus, and Etain Augusta. To the Imperium, we did pledge our loyalty and swore to never give them up, or let them down in our devotion to the Kingdom, or in defense of the Barony of Delftwood.
Soon thereafter, in a terrible storm, the royal line was ensured at Crown tournament. Duke Titus Scipio Germanicus and Lady Anna Leigh were victorious against all combatants as well as the elements, and were crowned Prince and Princess. We congratulate them on their victory, and look forward to working with them.
At Blackstone Raid, Lord Ulfr fought bravely and skillfully in the Seven Pearls Heavy Fighting Tournament. He represented us well. Baroness Helene and I wish to offer a special thanks to Baroness Clarice, and THL Desi, and Lord Nug for assistance when the Gods struck our horses lame. We are grateful to Baron Kire and Baroness Katherine, former Baron and Baroness of Blackstone Mountain, for hosting Her Excellency for the weekend, and assisting in her rescue from mechanical misfortune.
War Practice saw many of Delftwood’s swords, spears, and arrows strike true in training for the coming Pennsic War. Though again we faced our opponents as well as torrential rain, and unseasonal cold and sleet, our warriors persevered and honed their skills. His Excellency was honored to find Briana, our newest authorized rapier fighter on the field, and have her fight by his side. Our blades are being sharpened, this season.
We remind you all, that if you journey to Pennsic this summer and wish to camp with the Barony, please pre-register soon, and let Lord Aurelio, our land agent, know. We look forward to sharing arts both beautiful and bloody with you all.
Yours in Service,
Baron Fergus and Baroness Helene
